4 story addition to the New Market Theater building? Are we to assume the open space ( weekday parking lot) behind the loggia false wall is going away? I hope we are not losing a rare opportunity to upgrade the Skidmore Fountain area into a true piazza connecting the waterfront with the Ankeny alley. This is truly one of the most special architectural places in Portland and it should be expanded not reduced. I still maintain a renovated Fire Station and New Market Theater combo would be the perfect home for the James Beard Market (I know it was studied and rejected). Surely the capital expenditure would be less than the current ambitious proposal without the noxious effects of the bridge ramp stranglehold.
Any addition to the New Market Theater facing SW 1st Avenue will have to somehow incorporate the ground floor cast-iron façade elements that were donated by the Friends of Cast Iron Architecture. They were saved when the adjacent building was demolished.
